How To Bring Out The Best Features In a One Wall Kitchen

For some, a one-wall kitchen is nothing special, for others the concept is unusual. One-wall kitchens are generally encountered in small homes or apartments where floor space is very limited. By containing the kitchen space to a single wall section more space remains for other functions and features. This is very common when the kitchen is open and shares the room with the living or dining spaces. Of course, a one-wall kitchen can also be a valid option for large volumes too where this type of layout can maintain an open and spacious feel throughout the home.

One wall kitchen designs often require us to get even more creative with our space to ensure that every culinary need is met in an arrangement that suits our personal style. The one wall kitchens in this collection each bring a unique flavour to the table and explore different layouts. Yes we did say layouts, because even though these kitchen ideas follow a straight run, there are multiple ways in which to situate appliances and accessories, plus accompanying kitchen islands and dining areas.

Mirror fronted  appliances are intergrated into the cabinets in this single wall kitchen. Their reflective surface helps the large items to blend with the dark wooden finishes used. The hob and sink are concealed to keep the look open and airy.

If your one available kitchen wall just isn’t long enough, look up. Make use of high ceilings by installing a double run of wall units to increase your storage space. The highest, less accessible units can be used for storing seasonal and occasional items.

Add a border of matching colour. The wall behind this yellow kitchen is painted the same shade, use large areas of stark contrast to create high impact decor. This solid yellow kitchen sits at the back of an entirely black dining room.

Unique kitchen pendant lights add glamour and curve to a straight design. This one wall kitchen with island has the pendants suspended in the centre of the room, but you could use them in a similar way over a kitchen sink and prep area.

Add a little life. A white kitchen always looks clean and fresh but can be a little boring. A few indoor plants and some wooden textures and finishes could liven things up if luminous colours and patterns is not your thing.

An outer framework holds a kitchen as a separate entity from the rest of the room.

If it wasn’t for the integrated oven, you could pass this row of cabinets and not know there was a kitchen there at all. Bifold doors retract to reveal a concealed grey kitchen complete with sink and hob. Not everything about one-wall kitchens is bad. In fact, this is a pretty well-balanced layout, one which makes the most of small or open spaces, sometimes requiring very few compromises. An aspect that actually makes these kitchens very convenient is the fact that you can do all the prep work, cooking and cleaning in a single space without having to constantly move or turn around.
